Pandas, Hoppers still at the top



DROMANA and Boneo maintain their positions at the top of the MPCA Sub District ladder after impressive victories on Saturday.

Dromana’s victory was more profound given that it picked up maximum points against Tyabb (20).

Dromana resumed on the second day with 4/115 chasing Tyabb’s first inning score of 128.

Jed Savage went on to make 71 and Jack Fowler 51 while Jeff Bluhm scored a handy 41 at the bottom of the innings, this all helped Dromana to a score of 236.

Tyabb just needed to bat the rest of the afternoon to avoid an outright loss, however it was rolled for just 85.

Fowler snared 4/33 off 9.3 overs while Jye Voelkl took 4/26 giving him seven wickets for the innings.

Boneo went within one wicket of beating Tootgarook in an outright.

Boneo replied with 143 to Tootgarook’s first innings of 88 and then had them 9/88 in their second innings, falling agonisingly close.

Carrum was a lot luckier against Carrum Downs.  Defending 9/234 the Lions bowled out Carrum Downs for 43 and 108 – a hiding in anyone’s language.

Corey Hand took 7 wickets for the match while Brett Moulten also picked up seven wickets across the two innings.

In the final matches Skye defended its 171, restricting Balnarring to 143 while Frankston YCW’s 284 was too much for Ballam Park bowled out for 93.
